Minnow Theme: Need menu to be visible in Infinite Scroll and header background

  1. Hi, I am using Minnow Theme for roseinmidair.wordpress.com
    I would like the side menu to be visible in infinite scroll and also the tags to update the header background.

    thanks for your help!

    The blog I need help with is roseinmidair.wordpress.com.

  2. I would like the side menu to be visible in infinite scroll

    Due to the way Minnow operates, this could be a very complex change. If you open the menu and then narrow down your browser window, you will see that some of your content gets hidden on the left when the menu is open on smaller width browser windows (content slides to the left). From what I can see, we would have to limit this change to only wider screens/browser windows, perhaps something like 1250px or wider.

    Take a look at things as you narrow your browser window and see if you wish to proceed with this. It may take a while to work things out. As I said, this is a very complex change, and in the end, it might not work that well. Have you considered a theme that has a right sidebar that is not hidden that you could put a Custom Menu Widget in?

    also the tags to update the header background.

    I'm not sure I understand what you are asking here. Can you explain a little further?

  3. Hi,
    I understand, thanks for your help. As far as the Minnow header, is there any way to add an image as the header background?

  4. Yes you can add a image to the header area. Upload the image to your media library, get the URL of that image and replace URL_OF_IMAGE between the quote marks with the URL of your new image.

    .site-header {
    background: url("URL_OF_IMAGE") no-repeat scroll center top transparent;
    }

    Depending on the size of your image, other adjustments may have to be made.

  5. Thank you- also, how do I customize the posts to show the CATEGORIES associated with each post instead of the TAGS? When I imported the .xml file from Blogger, only the Categories show, and they were not translated as tags.

  6. Hi, sorry for the late reply. The Minnow theme is kind of unique in that it doesn't display categories with the posts, it will only list the tags, and CSS cannot be used to add that functionality.. You can include a categories widget in the sidebar so that people can get to categories of posts in that way, or you can perhaps change to a theme that shows categories with the posts.

    If you wish to convert your categories to tags so that they show in the post meta data, see this support page: http://en.support.wordpress.com/posts/categories/#converting-categories-to-tags .
